Filling potholes that shake, rattle and roll drivers has often been viewed as one of the most basic functions of city government.
But in New Orleans, it takes an average of 204 days before the Department of Public Works paves over potholes reported through 311, according to a report released Thursday by Inspector General Ed Michel. Only a quarter of complaints are resolved within a month. Another quarter of complaints take more than a year to be dealt with.
